Diseases of the Spinal Cord : Novel Imaging, Diagnosis and Treatment Hardback

Edited by Elke Hattingen, Stefan Weidauer, Matthias Setzer, Johannes C. Klein, Frank Vrionis


Spinal cord imaging has significantly benefited from a variety of new MR imaging methods.

Recent decades have also witnessed fundamental progress in understanding of the pathophysiology of spinal cord diseases, treatment options, neurosurgical procedures, and endovascular treatments.

This textbook provides an interdisciplinary overview of the new imaging modalities, identifies clues for MR imaging diagnosis and differential diagnosis and describes the anatomical background required to understand spinal cord diseases.

Important neurological symptoms are highlighted, and modern treatment options for different diseases are fully explained and discussed.

High-quality illustrations, including numerous images, are provided for all important spinal cord diseases, documenting relevant anatomical details, special MR imaging methods, differential diagnoses and possible treatment procedures.
